Shock me like an electric eel!

This year for halloween I decided to dress as an electric eel, inspired in part by Meg's Award-Winning Blog. I seriously laughed out loud while reading her post on costume ideas. Of course, I already new that eels were sassy and fun because of the MGMT song "ooh girl, shock me like an electric eel..." which I have been singing all week non-stop.
Unfortunately, I looked more like a jewel thief than an eel, which is why I recruited my husband to dress as a coral reef. He wore swim trunks and a blue shirt with natural sponges and sea creature illustrations pinned to it. (Please, whatever you do, do not look up electric eel on wikipedia to see whether they actually live in coral reefs).

Nemo the clown fish was a fan favorite. We got a lot of laughs, and I hope they were laughing with us and not at us ;).

Happy Halloween! What did you dress as this year?


  1. I saw that post too! Hysterical.

  2. Seriously? The most creative costume ever.

    Thanks for your lessons learned on Project Runway. Was Gordana's outfit not the worst last week!? How could she like it?

  3. LOL! Great costumes! I love the coral reef idea to compliment ur costume:)
